This paper examines employment equity practices at the municipal level in Ontario based on a survey of 121 municipalities to determine the degree to which they utilize employment equity practices in their organizations and the extent to which these practices are voluntary. The findings reveal that few municipalities engage in any sort of comprehensive employment equity processes and without legislation that provides guidelines for municipalities, it appears unlikely that employment equity in Ontario will improve.
